I have been taking red clover dried blossoms as an infusion tea a few times a day. I may be pregnant and am wondering whether it is safe or recommended to take during pregnancy. I have had 2 miscarriages this year, so I want to be safe (I am forty years old and have a 2 year old daughter). Thanks so much for your time.
A: I do not know that Red Clover would support a miscarriage. It is certainly not used to help one who intends to miscarry. For the general population, if using it to help conceive, I would encourage one to keep drinking the blossom infusion until you are sure you have conceived, then gradually switch over to Red Raspberry leaf and Nettle infusions. However, if you have concern I would prefer you make the decision. If you miscarry you may think it was the Red Clover. And each knows her body more intimately than someone else. I personally see this herb as wonderfully nourishing, and later nourishing to your abundant breast milk as well :)
Please let me know if I can help further. I hear you wish to be pregnant and so I wish a blessed pregnancy and child for you too :)
